Sabre Corporation has announced the development of a capability that helps travel agents in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to comply with recently liberalized U.S. regulations for trips booked to, from or within Cuba.

Available to travel buyers and tour operators, the Cuba Traveler Certification capability enhances the user experience in agents’ service desktops, Sabre said. The company is utilizing the standard Cuba travel certification form for passengers developed by the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).

Built on Sabre’s industry agency workspace, and powered by API technology, the Cuba Traveler Certification capability automatically alerts agents when they have booked an itinerary with air travel to Cuba in order to access the required certification form, transmit the needed data to the transporting airlines, and email the certification form to customers for their records.
